Sister Novena for Priests
Jesus in gratitude we offer to you, the hearts and the minds of all priests most especially those priests we witness with great esteem of your service and of your likeness. With unsurpassed thankfulness we submit the priests who cherish your call. Continue to fill them with grace and all of the benefits of your grace that is, discipline of holiness and church teaching, the encouragement of holiness, and the witness of living the gospel with joy and serenity. Strengthen them, Oh God, in kind and in number.
Renew in each of your chosen sons, the confidence of the bond between the family life and the life of the priesthood uniting with unmistakable clarity the Glory and design of God within the church. We pray in particular and for the guardianship of: St Augustine(The sinner renewed), St Thomas Aquinas(The Doctor of church teaching), St John Bosco (The Pastor) and may all priests that may be held in the bounds of purgatory intercede in this a prayer of protection, this a prayer of gratitude, and this a prayer hope.
(One Our Father, One hail Mary, Glory Be)
We recommend to You:
- the priest dearest to me;
- the priest who baptized me;
- the priest who absolved me from my sins;
- the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion;
- the priest who taught and instructed me;
- all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way.
O Jesus, keep them all close to Your heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity.
We invite also the special affections of St Gabriel the Archangel to our priests.
